Comprehensive Sports Injury Care

In many instances, surgery can be avoided with the correct treatment plan.  Our integrated team combines experts in rehabilitation and therapy to help speed your recovery.  A dedicated care plan specific to your needs will be developed while our team will help guide you along the way. Depending on your condition, goals, and preferences, your treatment may include:

  • Dedicated strengthening and conditioning with physical therapy experts.
  • Bracing and splinting – These specialized devices can help support your joints and, in some cases, even allow you to continue to perform with improved comfort while you continue to recover.
  • Progressive throwing programs – Helps you regain strength, endurance, and motion in your throwing arm so you can safely return to competitive sport.
  • Ultrasound-guided percutaneous tenotomy – Uses a small needle to break down scar tissue in a damaged tendon to stimulate healing.
  • Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections – Utilizing the healing potential of your own plasma proteins, healing of some conditions may be enhanced.
  • Cartilage Restoration – when the smooth cartilage surface of a joint is damaged, advances in cartilage therapy can help restore or heal that defect and promote pain relief and performance.
  • Ligament Reconstruction Surgery – Injured or torn ligaments as a result of sporting injuries can be reconstructed with minimally invasive surgical techniques that can help enhance your return to sport.
  • Meniscal Repair Surgery – The meniscus is the protective padding within the knee joint and is prone to injury.  In many instances, repair of the damaged meniscus with minimally invasive, arthroscopic techniques may be appropriate.
